This is a beautifully illustrated story showing the seasons in a garden and the creatures that visit there, and introducing the loss of a loved one. Evie loves the garden, especially on Mondays when the old gardener comes. He shows her everything in the garden, introducing her to the robin, the newts, and the frogs. "Do you like making gardens?" She asks. "I don't make gardens, Eve," he says, "God does. I just help." Then one Monday he doesn't come, and Mum says he won't be coming any more. He has gone to help God all the time. But Evie will never forget him and all the things he has taught her.
